PROFILE OF A HOME
Homeowners: Kevin and Julie Skare
Address: 8674 Hampton Bay Place, Mason
Their home: Five bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths, one study, and a finished lower level which includes a full kitchen, screened in porch, large deck, patio with adjoining fire pit, home theater, walk up attic and a pool table room, with 8,200 square feet of living space
When they moved in: October 2005
Why they were first attracted to home and neighborhood: “We attended the 2005 Homearama and fell in love with our house the first time we walked through it. Our house was named Tara by the builder, and it is a fitting name since it has many qualities of the home of this name from ‘Gone With the Wind.’ There is a curved staircase in the foyer with a beautiful mural of a magnolia tree. We also love the beautiful landscaping and the view of the pond and its fountains that we see from our deck and porch. ”
Why they love home and neighborhood today: “We love the extensive waterways (where you can canoe or kayak), the dog friendly residents, the fitness center, the beautiful swimming pool area, and of course, the gorgeous landscaping throughout the neighborhood. We also have very friendly neighbors that we can socialize with.”
